  1. May be of interest, includes hook loader flat racks and a Bedford 500 engine. Also, a selection of older cars that have discrepencies between build date and reg date - demobs perhaps? https://bid.tsauction.co.uk/auctions/catalog/id/42?page=1
  2. Some nice trucks and busses here, jeeps and an Explorer. Check what's written on the side of the open top fire engine.
  3. Not quite on the same scale, I have an old quad bike which as an experiment I fitted a cheap gel battery to around ten years ago. Plugged into it is a small (10" x 4" approx) Maplins solar panel hung vertically, facing west on the outside wall of the shed. The bike stands for 6 to 8 months at a time, sometimes a year without even the shed door being opened, but it's never failed to start on the button every time when asked. Small beans I know, but proves the tech is out there.
  4. Going back about ten years now, we had a batch of VW T5.1 vans delivered. Almost over night we had piles of near miss reports in the office (which up 'till then were almost unheard of) and almost all had one common denominator. Random vehicle pulling out in front of van when turning right on roundabout. It didn't take much head scratching to work out why. These were fitted with daytime running lights. These lights were white, 4" x 4", and 21w. The indicator was directly beside it, 4"x3" with a 21w orange bulb. Result - Invisible indicators unless you are viewing from directly in fro
  5. Led lights are a menace and should be banned outright in public places. The light source is extremely intense yet the ratio of projected usable light is minimal with no true colour. We have led street lights and they are useless, can't walk anywhere without a torch.. You now have to drive on main beam (halogen thankfully) to see anything on side roads - proof being the main roads locally have gone back to orange sulphur type lights. The difference is 'clear to see'. Our new night trunkers now come supplied with old style halogen front fog lights under the bumper and spots on top because t
  6. Must pay more attention... I was probably looking beyond the flags.
  7. Part restored jeep on a trailer heading west in thick fog somewhere near Frome, Somerset
  8. Like the flag poles. Were they there last week?
  9. In Country Life Magazine Feb 17th 2021 issue, there is a two page article about the German army at Castle Martin with a couple of photos.. Hopefully may be of interest.
  10. From memory it's called a Waukesha Knock Engine.
  11. Read the small print carefully... Cockpits premium 15% +vat, all others 25% +vat! That's a bit harsh.

  14. Maybe you need to get swmbo to agree to a tent repair, then repair it with 5 tons of RSJs and a truckload of insulated cladding.
